Recently I made a file and after finding it useless, tried to delete it. To my dismay, it vanished and came back immediately.
I tried to Shift+Delete it but to no avail. It just keeps coming back. I'm not able to delete it.
Can anyone tell me what's happening? I checked for virus(updated to 1st month this year, but came up with nothin
What kind of file did you make?
no.. just an ordinary zip file.
Even after restart and deleting file, no error occurs. It just disappears for a second & comes back (AS IF SOMEONE IS 'CTRL+Z'ing AS SOON AS I DELETE!!!)
hey dont worry try avg anti virus it actully solves this type of probs!so try this and reply
whats the name of the file?
did u create it yourself?
what was in the zipfile?
check your startup scripts (if any) + check registry
By all means dont open that zip!
Simply - you have a virus. It runs as a process and makes sure that his copies will remain on the hard disk - thus if you delete the zip its simply created again.
Two things to do - use some anti spyware (like SpyBot Search & Destroy) and some anti virus (like Grisoft AVG Free).
One additional thing - ctrl+alt+del, list your processes, and google about every single one from the list. As a query use just process executable file name, like spool.exe etc. You will then know which processes may be dangerous, and wipe them out in windows's "troubleshooting mode" (I dont know how is it in English, in Polish it's tryb awaryjny :D)
no... no... guyz.. I just backed up some of my data... like documents into a zip file. After extracting them, i thought of deleting it. That's when these things happened.
mebbe u shud try using secure deleter softwares like Eraser...
first scan the file
then shred it
then scan your hole computer
then if that doesnt work use a registry fixer
and an error guard and then if that doesnt work try defraging it as that will help shift the files
and again if that doesnt work look at your zip file opener!
